BENEFITING: JENESSE CENTER INC
ORGANIZER: JENESSE CENTER INC
I choose to support Jenesse Center's legal services department, which provides direct legal services to victims and survivors of domestic violence, because I understand the importance of access to legal assistance in breaking the cycle of abuse. So many barriers to escaping intimate partner violence are legal in nature and require the services of a skilled professional to overcome them.
Jenesse Center has been providing legal services to survivors, at no charge, since 1999 and remains one of the few domestic violence intervention agencies in south Los Angeles with a full scope legal department.
Your support of Jenesse Center's legal services department can mean the difference between a family escaping abuse and leading peaceful, self-determined lives or remaining trapped in a crippling cycle of power, control, and violence. The beautiful thing is that it doesn't take much to make a real impact:
$25.00 = 1 hour of free assistance in obtaining a domestic violence restraining order $50.00 = 1 hour consultation with Jenesse Center's training legal staff
$100.00 = Preparation of forms and pleadings
$250.00 = 1 full day of transportation and court accompaniment
$500.00 = Attorney provided representation at one hearing on a restraining order or other family law matter
Since 1980, Jenesse Center, Inc. has been helping families to escape and overcome the trauma of domestic violence. Through our comprehensive, holistic service approach to domestic violence intervention, Jenesse seeks to remove every conceivable barrier, including financial obstacles, to overcoming the effects of domestic abuse and breaking the cycle of violence that ensnares so many families.
